of joe wilson about small segments of the population which may be important, but it's happening at the expense of the 174 million. how do we advance the conversation about real choice for most people in america? >> well, it's actually the case when you look at the senate finance bill, what they have done. they have taken insurance group, employer insurance like you get, and they walled it off. they said we will create a new system to help people get insurance who are on their own or uninsured or work for small businesses. this is not the $47 million uninsured. it doesn't include people who are now uninsured, or buy coverage on their own. it's a decent segment of the population. i believe it would be better to let everybody choose. ron wyden, this is a bill he has been pushing. and that would let people that have insurance have the opportunity to choose a different plan. that's going to be a bit of a struggle. we heard before employers don't like this. they like to keep control and they don't like the idea of losing the control, and that's a big problem here. have you to sort of

, out of joe wilson's dramatic "you lie" demonstration there in congress, he's a member of the house, but i think he projected an image that a lot of people are seeing for republicans in general in the house and the senate. when you look at the poll that shows even republicans saying that the representatives seem to be motivated more by partisan concerns than concerns for the country. as ronald widen says, polls are acceptable, but that's the trending that indicates the public option side is winning. >> one of the things that seems to hold fast in the polls is confusion. the majority do not understand what's being talked about. doesn't matter how many times the president goes out there and tries to explain it. he still has not succeeded. delivering an explanation that voters, a majority of voters feel comfortable with. is there anything he can do or anything you expect this process to do as the congress moves on this that will help clarify for the public what it is that these guys are voting on? >> the polls in the focus groups indicate a lot of people, while they support the public
, is america coming apart? and we mention what joe wilson said and the screaming and calling the demonstrators last summer, fashionists and evil-mongers, it's not simply that americans disagree with each other, it seems like they're coming to detest one another in a lot of ways in their behavior politically. not only politically, but on racial issues and social issues and cultural issues. the old unity we used to have even when we disagreed sharply, politically. is really gone. you really ask yourself what is it that really holds us together as a people? >> well, you know, mika, it is a great day to think about it. and i don't usually blame the media. i think it's easy to blame the media for everything. i think usually americans get the media they deserve. i don't think that's the case any more. i think in this season there are people that make tens of millions of dollars by dividing this country. by preaching hate on the far right and preaching hate on the far left. and instead of focusing on things that bring us together as a country, they make their money, they drive their ratings, they sel
